Please join us on the morning of Friday 1 November to be the first to hear about the new ULI UK Later Living: Housing with Care Guide.

One in four of us will be over 65 in 2037. People over 65 live in a third of all dwellings and home owners over 65 own property worth £1.5 trillion - there is going to be more demand and the potential to offer more choice in the later living sector.

Through this guide, we explore the provision of Housing with Care in this sector through some myth-busting and the promotion of good and innovative practice, which puts people and choice at the centre of delivery.

This guide focuses on professionally managed communities where there is an incentive and commitment to create long-term, income-generating business models across a variety of tenure and funding structures.

Hear from our authors, who will outline the content in their respective chapters, and an expert panel discussing what lies ahead for Housing with Care in the UK market.

This event and guide is relevant to existing funders, commissioners, investors, developers and operators, both public and private sector, as well as new entrants who wish to diversify.
Our aspiration is to encourage conversations about what is needed, promote new and emerging models that will attract new entrants, funders and operators, and inform strategic planning across a diverse spectrum of stakeholders.
